[image]Fires in Western Africa
NASA's Aqua satellite picked up heat signatures from fires in west Africa on January 7, 2012 at 14:05 UTC (9:05 a.m. EST) using the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument that flies aboard the satellite. Fires appear in red on this image. There is a large area of fires in eastern Guinea, southwestern Mali, and north and central Cote D'Ivoire. MODIS also detected fires in the northern half of Sierra Leone, southwestern Burkina Faso, and throughout Ghana...
